About me

I am an experienced and established Person Centred Counsellor, offering sessions via Skype, at this time of isolation and social distancing. Whatever you want help with, whether it is the impact of the current situation that has arisen with the Covid 19 virus, or a long-standing or prior issue that you do not want to delay discussing, you are welcome to contact me. I am additionally qualified in Sex and Relationship therapy, and able to work with couples online. I have an interest in working with those who want to discuss the impact of Boarding School on the present day.

I have been working with individuals since 1996 and with couples since 2011. I am passionate about helping people tap back into their own resources in order to solve problems and make changes. Perhaps you are feeling flat, low, worried, stressed or desperate. Maybe you are having difficulty in a relationship, or with your work, or perhaps you are unhappy about the quality or direction of your life.

You are free to discuss anything with me that concerns or worries you, whether it is an individual issue, relationship issue or family issue; whether your concern is depression, generalised anxiety, panic attacks, stress, or a work related issue; anger or anger management, bereavement, separation and divorce, trauma, childhood related issues and boarding school issues, addiction, sexuality or sexual identity, or perhaps you have an interest in personal development.

I work with individuals and couples on a long or short term basis. I support couples via couple counselling at any stage of their relationship to improve communication, negotiation and compromise, to develop intimacy, throughout separation and divorce, recovery from affairs and betrayals, sexual differences and difficulties. I work with couples to understand and resolve the impact of  bereavement, trauma, childhood related issues, addiction, depression, work related stress, infertility, family related issues and cultural differences. I see couples of every sexual and gender orientation.

I have worked since 1996 primarily in independent practice, as well as having had some experience within the NHS and voluntary sector (bereavement, alcohol, and with survivors of sexual abuse and their families).
I offer clinical supervision to experienced and trainee counsellors on an individual basis and within group settings.

I offer a respectful, sensitive, honest and empathic approach.

Do please feel free to call me on 07732607818 if you have any questions or for an brief exploratory chat. If I do not pick up, leave a message with your name and a contact number. Let me know when its NOT ok to call back. Or email me on diane@citypsychotherapy.london or via the site.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
